of marriage act passed in 1996 by congress, signed into law by president clinton. and what it says is that for federal law purposes, marriage can exist only between a man and a woman. so that means this in the nine states where same sex marriage is legal, if a same sex couple gets married there, they're considered mayrried for state lw but not federal law and the practical consequence is they are denied about 1,000 federal benefits, tax benefits, survivors benefits, to be covered under health insurance. that sort of thing. it will have to decide whether that law is unconstitutional discrimination, denying those couples equal treatment. what the advocates of overturning it say is never before has the federal government done anything but defer to a state's definition of what a legal marriage is. now the second big issue is california's proposition 8. this was the ballot proposition passed, overturned two years ago. what it says is that even though a california court said that marriage was legal in that state, it banned gay mrarnlg in california. now if the court grants that case, the

, the state's former republican chairman greer claims they passed a law that was designed to squelch turnout and give the election to mitt romney. it made it harder for voters who moved to actually cast ballots. the republican party of florida has responded and tell "outfront," i want to quote them here, jim greer's quotes are false and details keep changing. great to have both of you. roland, let me start with you. these accusations come from jim greer, former boss of the party. he is accused of stealing money from the party. accusations come from charlie crist who abandoned the party to run as an independent. all that context is important. are these claims credible, though? >> for two years i've been blasting these efforts in florida as outright voter suppression and it is no shock to me that you're actually hearing this. it goes beyond just shortening early voting days. remember, they got rid of voting on sunday. now, in a country where you want more people voting, why would you take away a day when people would say, hey, no need to go to the polls tuesday, i can actually vote on that par
